I made this unit for my Father-In-Law. This allows him to display his model cars in a space where they can be seen all around. The front glass and frame are fixed and the side glass open in two levels each to get to the models in there. This provides a way of framing the models with no center stile in front.

More details are available here. —-> http://www.rhodeswoodsmith.com/Curio%20Info.htm

Thanks for looking.

I am thinking of using glass for shelving, how thick is the glass that you used and what are the overall dimensions of the glass?

Thanks

The Shelf glass is 1/4” IIRC and the doors are also 1/4” with a pre-drilled hole in each. The front glass is 1/8” and I think it’s tempered.

The Shelves were 15” X 42” and the front glass was 47” square.

That was built about 3 years ago and I don’t remember everything about that.

Thanks!

Tommy, thanks for getting back to me. I am making some similar shelves out of cedar and didn’t know how thick the glass should be.
